    One of the better lines in American Graffiti. We're on the 50th anniversary of The Day the Music Died.


    Best two-minute song in rock and roll history: Buddy Holly's "Oh Boy."

    Substitute "Rave On" for "Oh Boy" and I'd agree with you.

    "Long Tall Sally" by the Beatles, with George Martin on the piano.

    It's note-perfect from start to finish and it completely shreds Little Richard for beyond-manic energy and drive. And it was recorded in one take.


    With all due respect to Buddy Holly, if he and the Crickets had ever tried to record this song in this manner, they would have hurt themselves.

    Is there a point here?

  8. With all due respect. nobody BUT NOBODY shreds Little Richard.
    However, on "Money," John does indeed shred Barrett Strong.

    They tore apart the Isley Brothers....John ripped Barrett Strong a new asshole....and Paul did indeed shred Little Richard.

    Respectfully. In one blistering two-minute-long take. :)
